    My ds showed me 2 roosters tonite around 6:30 that were "shivering". Hunched up, very quiet, shivering like they were in the middle of a blizzard. Tonite one of them is dead. When picked up by his legs a bunch of green mucous drained out his mouth. The other one looks really bad. What is wrong & how do I keep my other chickens from getting it?

    Isolate them right away. Get fluids down them... some with terramyacin in it.
